About

The highly anticipated Netflix series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, comes to life as a thrilling tactical strategy game! In The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, fans will have an opportunity to experience the fantasy world of Thra by playing through–and going beyond–the events of the series. Players will even encounter never-seen-before playable characters, stories, and environments.

Over the course of 80 unique turn-based campaign battles taking place across the world of Thra, players will recruit new allies and customize their forces by assigning them jobs and outfitting them with new equipment.

Key Features

  • Continue the Story in an Expanded World of Thra – Delve deeper into the legend of The Dark Crystal, learning more about the Gelfling clans and their histories across more than five diverse, modular territories. Choose from over 15 character jobs and play through reimagined and brand-new battles against the malicious Skeksis, and help lead the proud Gelfling to victory.
  • Gelfling Tactics – Devise unique ways for the outmatched Gelfling to fulfill their prophecy in multi-layered, turn-based tactical combat. Units can be customized for specific fights with gear, upgradable abilities, and a job system. Use guile, planning, and cunning to overcome superior foes!
  • Highly Replayable – Replay finished battles to earn full marks, or replay the entire game! Once completed players can challenge a New Game+ mode, keeping all progress from their first playthrough to re-experience more difficult versions of the battles.
  • Rich, Dynamic Environments – The world of Thra is a living, unpredictable environment as dangerous as it is beautiful. Dynamic events on the battlefield, which can create opportunities or put the Gelflings at a disadvantage, can necessitate rapid changes in strategy
